Tube: TfL will capture data from travellers’ smartphone signals

 

Transport for London is to start capturing depersonalised wi-fi connection data from millions of London Underground passengers’ phones from early July.      

TfL ran a four-week pilot of capturing wi-fi data in 2016 and has developed the system in-house.

When a device such as a smart phone has wi-fi enabled, it continually searches for a wi-fi network by sending out a unique identifier – known as a Media Access Control address – to nearby routers.
